The skin collection for Overwatch Halloween Terror 2021 was a success with fans, with Brigitte and Lucio’s frightening ensembles sending chills down players’ spines.
Halloween Terror in Overwatch is one of the game’s most popular annual events. Players all over the world are on the edge of their seats as soon as the Halloween season begins, thanks to gorgeous skins like the legendary Witch Mercy.
We’ve seen a slew of frightening Legendary cosmetics for Brigitte, Echo, Lucio, and Reinhardt, as well as Epic skins for Roadhog, Zarya, and Genji this time around.
And they’re a huge hit among fans. The anticipation is palpable, with players remarking that they are the best Halloween skins they’ve seen in years.
The Halloween event has won over fans with an incredible variety of skins, coming at the conclusion of a tumultuous year for Blizzard, which included the Activision litigation, McCree’s forced name change, and criticism over Overwatch 2.
In an October 10 tweet, renowned Overwatch YouTuber Stylosa comments, “Overwatch Halloween Terror is once again unbeatable in skin quality.” They never miss with this event.”
mL7, a Team Envy content designer, echoed Sylosa’s comments, calling the skins “the best Overwatch Halloween skins since the game was released.”
Fans are getting set to celebrate the season in style, and it’s not just because of the Legendary skins. The Epic skins, which are generally considered mid-tier, have also wowed admirers.
One admirer comments on the Genji skin, “How the f**k is this epic!” “IT [sic] IS TOO GOOD.”
While some players are disappointed that Mercy, the Swiss healer, did not receive the magnificent Vampire Mercy skin that went viral in the run-up to the event, it’s apparent that the great majority of gamers are eager to jump into the fray and grab these Halloween treats.
So, make sure you’re Halloween-ready the next time you log in, and maybe you’ll receive a pleasant present in your Halloween mystery box!
